      Please visit our brand new 'informed researcher' section for guidance on all aspects of the research process, from generating ideas to finding information to managing your data and results to dissemination.

      Can social media help with my research?

      You might use social media services such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in your personal life, but have you ever thought of using them in your research? Could a wiki help you collaborate with others? Would Twitter have alerted you to that important conference? Are podcasts and videos likely to interest people in your research? How can RSS feeds save you loads of time and keep you up to date?

      Why not explore our guide to social media for research, which aims to show you how the latest social media tools can help you at all stages in your research, from thinking of ideas, to searching for references, to collaborating with others..

      We've illustrated it with real life examples, and provided tips and advice in our 3 minute tutorials, as well as links to try things out for yourself or learn more.
